Investors managing US$ 3 trillion encourage participation in the UN Global Compact

A coalition of 34 institutional investors managing approximately US$ 3.3 trillion in assets are encouraging 1900 companies, located in 44 countries, to consider joining the United Nations Global Compact as part of the “PRI for Rio” collaborative engagement.

Following the UN’s Rio+20 conference in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in June 2012, a group of PRI signatories launched this engagement to further support the call for an increased focus on strategic sustainability among companies globally, calling it PRI for Rio. To date, approximately 7,000 corporate signatories in 135 countries have committed to the implementation, disclosure and promotion of the 10 Global Compact principles, making it the largest voluntary corporate responsibility initiative.
